Is there connectivity between VM (Linux 5) and main OS i.e. Win7? I think you want to use samba to transfer data between guest OS and your Win7..!!

Samba on linux
Yes both the system are pingable.
it means both system is on network.

Ping does'nt mean that they're in same network. But for samba, they should be in same network domain.
Have u setup any DNS? or can you ping each machine using there full hostname, not with just IP?

i try from win7 to ping my guest os using there name but nothing will do.
if they are not on same network how i can do for this setup.
please detail step by step help needed

First need is that you put both Win & Linux machines in same network domain. So set some domain first. Also check your Windows PC's FQDN or is this a part of some WORKGROUP? The linux should also belong to the same network. Also both machines should know each other, not just with their IPs, but with hostnames/FQDN. To do this, set domainname in your Linux machine & make it a part of the same domain as your Win machine is in.
Check your /etc/resolv.conf file and nameserver entries in it, if not, then make the same nameserver entries in it as your Windows machines has.

After that, you can install samba server like:
sudo apt-get install samba smbfs

I can't help but what is 'Linux 5'? RedHat? Something else? That will define the commands that you might need to install something.

[root@lnxdb ~]# /etc/resolv.conf

/etc/resolv.conf: Permission denied
